Happiness is not made by what we own. It is what we share.

Jonathan Sacks

Rabbi Jonathan Sacks was a prominent Jewish leader in Britain for more than 20 years. He was also well known for his public speaking, in which he often emphasized the values of community and compassion, such as in his popular 2017 TED Talk, “How we can face the future without fear, together.” Sacks’ focus on bringing people together and guiding spirituality into the modern era netted him the admiration of Queen Elizabeth II, who knighted him in 2005. Here, he reminds us that true fulfillment isn’t material — it’s based on our connections with the people around us.
